The Titans had a pretty good auction and they successfully assembled their team for their first season of IPL.
Gujarat Titans begin their journey in the Indian Premier League (IPL) against the Lucknow Supergiants on March 28 at Wankhede Stadium. The Gujarat Titans were quite late in branding their franchise, but they eventually came up with a stylish name. The franchise had a good IPL 2022 mega auction and they have successfully assembled their team for their first IPL season. Unfortunately, their lead-off hitter Jason Roy has decided to skip the season for his own reasons and the franchise has yet to announce the replacement for him.
Meanwhile, the Titans have named Gary Kirsten as their hitting coach and Ashish Nehra as their bowling coach. They have a quality support staff. They have named Hardik Pandya as their skipper. During the retentions, they maintained a standout match winner in the form of Rashid Khan and supported a young Indian sound engineer, Shubman Gill.
Gujarat’s purchases in the auctions were Mohammed Shami (Rs 6.25 crore), Jason Roy (Rs 2 Crore), Lockie Ferguson (Rs 10 crore), Abhinav Sadarangani (Rs 2.6 crore), Rahul Tewatia (Rs 9 crore), Noor Ahmed (30 lakh), R Sai Kishore (Rs 3 crore), Dominic Drakes (Rs 1.1 crore), Jayant Yadav (Rs 1.70 crore), Vijay Shankar (Rs 1.40 crore), Darshan Nalkande (Rs 20 Lakh ), Yash Dayal (Rs 3.20 crore), Alzarri Joseph (Rs 2.40 crore), Pradeep Sangwan (Rs 20 Lakh), David Miller (Rs 3 Crore), Wriddhiman Saha (Rs 1.90 crore), Matthew Wade (Rs 2.40 crore) and Varun Aaron (Rs 50 Lakh).
